Xiaomi’s new concept phone has a waterfall display that curves in all four cornersFebruary 5, 2021
Xiaomi likes to show out concept phones every once in a while with the last one being the Mi Mix Alpha from September 2019. Today, we get a look at a different type of curved display that melts in all four corners from top to bottom and left to right. Xiaomi is calling it a 88-degree hyper quad-curved screen and it’s the most extreme form of a curved screen we’ve seen to date.
The concept device features no ports or physical buttons. The new display actually comes with four rounded cutouts in the corners which are presumably there to deter unwanted palm touches. Another interesting choice is the positioning of the status bar on the top right-hand-side.
Mind you the promotional images and video are just showing off renders and not an actual device though Xiaomi representatives have confirmed to The Verge that there is a real-life prototype with the new hyper quad-curved screen. There’s no word on when or if we’ll see a commercially available phone with Xiaomi’s new quad curved panel any time soon.
